  • Dispatchers are directing callers with COVID-19 questions to medical professionals or transferring callers to local dispatchers to seek direction from a medical resource. This is how State Patrol dispatchers would typically handle medical calls.
  • To help keep first responders safe, dispatchers are asking illness-specific questions to help determine response resources.

The State Patrol will continue monitoring Centers for Disease Control and Minnesota Department of Health and Department of Public Safety guidance to best keep the public and first responders safe.
